	1.2 > Uploading Files to your Server
2.0 > Setting up PHP-xWhois
	2.1 > Setting Permissions for PHP-xWhois

Step 1.0 > Downloading Files
The only official Download for PHP-xWhois is http://sourceforge.net/projects/php-xwhois/.
Here you also get first hand information about PHP-xWhois. Download the newest (v0.2) Version to
your computer on your favourite place on hard-disk.

	Step 1.1 > Unpacking Files
	Once you have downloaded the newest Version, you have to unpack it. You can use your favourite unpacker
	for this procedure. When you finished, you should have several files and folders, where the top folder should
	be named php-xwhois. Go on to next step.
	Step 1.2 > Uploading Files to your Server
	To use PHP-xWhois you have to upload the files to your server where you will use PHP-xWhois. Use your favourite
	FTP-Program (or other things) and put the files on your server. Once finished, you should have the same structure
	on your server as you local have.

Step 2.0 > Setting up PHP-xWhois
When you are finished uploading PHP-xWhois, you should open xwhois.php and configure it. See also the "using_php-xwhois.txt" file.
Yet there are not very many options to set, so this should be easy:

	-> When you are using the XML-caching function you must set the correct Path to PHP-xWhois. Search for "// setting script root" in
	-> whois.php and edit the line under it. With a false Path XML-caching will not work correctly.
	Step 2.1 > Setting Permissions for PHP-xWhois
	When you are using the xml-cache Function you have to set your /php-xwhois/whoiscache/ folder to 777
